A Movie with a Message.
17 October 2004 | by ManujaSee all my reviews

I like this film because it was a true family drama, and a dying genre, even in Hindi movies. The family relationships are well portrayed and often very touching even though they can run to the "too sugar sweet" area sometimes. But this is a very miner concern, because the bulk of the film has a great vibe and a great flow. The story advances with all the songs, instead of detracting from it.

I think what a lot of people have forgotten to focus on is the social message conveyed in this movie. This movie explores the dangers of letting people poison your mind, and how family relationships can be badly effected by one person's wrong decision. The Mother in the story is made to feel insecure after the incident where the daughter's brother in law steals the family business from under them. This incident propels her to look at her own family in a different light, and to heed the machinations of 3 very frivolous women, and a man who wants to see his daughter lead the good life at all costs. The fact that they show us how well the family gets on before this incident shows us that regardless of how well you get on, such things can still happen to tear you apart. But the touching thing about this story is how the brother's and sister's rally together to protect each other, and how the firm love and respect between them swings things back into place. I loved this film. ALL the actor's contributed to the film. The characters they play are different, thus adding to the story in their own ways. I also disagree with another comment on this page that if you like this film you would not like films like "Astitva" and "Chandani Bar". I beg to differ. I liked those films very much. You don't have to be stuck in one genre, and it's better to be able to appreciate many genre's insteas of just one.
